Please Vote for Fresh Ground Intel

Chuck and I are VERY proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in the year and a half that we’ve been together. One of our first projects was to get us smarter about our clients. To do that, we built Fresh Ground Intel: a smart combination of monitoring, competitive intelligence and content curation services.

Now, I’ll tell you more about Fresh Ground Intel in a second, but what I really need to do before I go any further is to explain what MassChallenge is, why we entered it, and how you can help us.

So what is Fresh Ground Intel? In a tweet: Fresh Ground Intel delivers actionable industry insights that help organizations connect, learn and compete. It is a fusion of monitoring, competitive intelligence and content curation tools. By adding human insight and context to the monitoring and filtering process, Fresh Ground Intel can quickly add value to individuals across an organization. Our hybrid technology/services business model was designed to be scalable, yet still remain “intimate.”

Fresh Ground Intel is the cure for information overload. We monitor, filter and add industry- and organization-specific context to the torrent of data coming from traditional, online and social media sources. We work alongside existing listening tools and help marketers get the right information to the right people – whether they are inside or outside the organization. Fresh Ground Intel helps marketers get the most value out of their listening tools.
